Max Payne 3 – Review (360, PS3, PC)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: It’s been around 9 years since the industry has seen a Max Payne release. What has our favorite gritty, cynical, and self-angst ridden hero been up to since then? You guessed it, drinking himself silly and popping painkillers. Max Payne reinvigorated the third person shooter genre by infusing it with cinematic action, comic-book style cuts scenes, a strong narrative, and a bullet time feature taken straight from our favorite John Woo films.

Max Payne 3 Review

maximum pc
4 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Max Payne is a man who’s insanely uncomfortable inside his own skin. He’s still haunted by the death of his family, and in Max Payne 3 , his body—more so than any random member of Brazil’s criminal underbelly—is the target of his most vicious attacks. Booze. Pills. Booze. Pills. Booze. Pills. Perhaps the most self-destructive character gaming has ever seen, Max is a ticking time bomb of good intentions and life’s harsh realities.
  • Pros: Story’s well-done when it’s at its best; fantastic animations make shooting feel amazing; neat multiplayer ideas.
  • Cons: Story often secondary to shooting; difficulty spikes, bad checkpoints, and constant cover often frustrate; multiplayer lacks real hooks.

Max Payne 3 PC Review

20 June 2012
  • Excerpt: There was a time when we thought a third Max Payne game was never going to happen. The original developers, Remedy Entertainment, had sold off the franchise rights, and the new owners, Take Two, didn't seem to be interested in making a sequel. And while the first two games saw console releases, they weren't great ports on PS2 and Xbox, so Max Payne was only ever really a beloved series for PC gamers out there.

  • Conclusion: Almost 12 years since the original PC game was released, Max Payne is back in action with the self-titled Max Payne 3. The release of this game wasn’t an easy one, after being announced back in 2009 the game has continuously been pushed back in its release. Max Payne has now moved to Sao Paulo, Brazil and is working private security for a wealthy family.

Max Payne 3

pconly.nl
3 September 2013
  • Summary: Na het spelen van Max Payne 3 zul je nooit meer hetzelfde naar games kijken. Lip syncs die niet helemaal synchroon zijn, stemmen die net niet bij het personage passen, animaties die rommelig zijn. Rockstar heeft deze game zo ongelooflijk strak afgewerkt dat je soms medelijden krijgt met andere ontwikkelaars die de komende tijd hun game uit gaan brengen. Die zitten achter hun bureau, het hoofd in de handen en verzuchten 'onze game wordt nooit zo mooi'.
  • Pros: Aandacht voor detail ongelooflijk, Ziet er geweldig uit, Personages perfect uigewerkt, Animaties grensverleggend, Actie kan intens zijn, Multiplayer prettige verrassing
  • Cons: Shootdodge werkt niet goed, Stijl en moeilijkheidsgraad botsen, Ellendige checkpoints

Recension: Max Payne 3

se.ign.com
3 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Svaret på frågan om detta verkligen är Max Payne är både ja och nej. Max Payne må ha rakat sig, men det är bara en ytlig förändring. Actiongenren har dock förändrats så pass under den tid som gått att Max Payne 3 känns spelmekaniskt bakåtsträvande. Fans av serien lär även bli besvikna över den opersonliga handlingen och avsaknaden av minnesvärda excentriker som Vladimir Lem eller Jack Lupino.

  • Summary: Бар на тихом пляже где-то в Баия, клетчатая рубаха, темные очки на пол-лица, красочный закат. Rockstar поставила точку в истории, не опускаясь до намеков на продолжение (хотя и о третьей части, судя по цифрам продаж, ее немногие просили). Дайте человеку отдохнуть. И серии — тоже.

TEST. Max Payne 3 (PC)

Game Blog
15 June 2012
  • Summary: Rockstar s'est impeccablement réapproprié Max Payne. C'est plus sombre que jamais, et si Max Payne évolue certes dans une nouvelle direction avec cet épisode, il reste un personnage profondément noir, torturé, qui tue au ralenti pour accélérer sa dépression. Hyper jouable, magnifiquement réalisé, le solo reste cependant un peu prisonnier de sa formule : c'est du côté du multijoueurs qu'il faudra se rafraîchir, et contre toute attente, celui de Max Payne 3 s'avère être un...
  • Pros: Réalisation superbe, Gameplay fidèle à la série, mais raffiné, Narration réussie, Sombre et sans concession, Un multijoueur de haute volée, La bonne vieille voix-off de Max qui s'en colle lui-même plein la tronche
  • Cons: Je préférais les cinématiques en bande-dessinée, Manque un peu de séquences alternatives pour varier les plaisirs, Pas de bonnes surprises côté IA
